In the midst of all of the bombshell announcements Disney made last year – closing the Great Movie Ride, Ratatouille expansion to France in Epcot, the Tron coaster – they also snuck in possibly the most exciting announcement of all: a Star Wars-themed resort! Not only will the resort by Star Wars-themed, but it will be completely immersive, allowing guests to interact with the world of Star Wars like never before!
This weekend, at the D23 Expo in Japan, we got a new look at some more details as to what awaits us in the Star Wars resort, including the fact that it’s location will be right next to Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge, allowing guests to always remain in the Star Wars world. Jennifer Fickley-Baker from the Disney Parks Blog has even more info here:
This first-of-its-kind resort will combine luxury with complete immersion into an authentic Star Wars story. Guests’ journey through space will start when everyone departs together for a multiday Stars Wars adventure by boarding a starship alive with characters and stories that unfold all around them during a voyage through the galaxy.
At the resort, guests immediately become active citizens of the galaxy and can dress up in the proper attire. Every resort window will also have a view into space. The opportunity for immersion at this resort will also stand out among all Disney resorts around the globe, as it will be seamlessly connected to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, allowing guests a total Star Wars experience.
